Tasting Notes

A harmonious blend of ripe peach and citrus, wrapped in a subtle embrace of vanilla and oak. With a creamy texture and a touch of minerality, it's like a sunlit stroll through the vineyard. A Chardonnay that perfectly captures the essence of Margaret River's terroir.

Winemakers Note

Individual machine and hand harvests were crushed, chilled and pressed into tanks for a 3-4 day settling. All batches were then racked and warmed before either going into barrel or tank to undergo wild/inoculated fermentation. Some batches were fermented with higher grape solids to promote a savoury element in the overall blend. The barrel fermented portion was fermented in 3-4 year old puncheons, we wanted the fruit to shine through and not be inhibited by oak flavours. In contrast to the other Chardonnays in the Flametree range, 50% of the Embers Chardonnay was inoculated for MLF, giving the wine greater softness and texture.
